What to Expect

Tesla's In-House Cell Engineering team is looking for an Engineering Program Manager to drive Li-ion battery cell development programs focusing on electrode design. The role requires a strong technical background, a critical- thinking mindset, a passion to launch new technologies, and demonstrated ability to lead cross-functional teams to execute quickly and effectively. Tesla moves quickly so we expect this individual to operate with a high degree of autonomy. The Engineering Program Manager will be immersed in the cell development process at each phase, managing programs from concept to mass production. They will be expected to define the program plan, drive the program to meet the plan, and manage the recovery in the event of a program slip. They will sit at the intersection of electrode material and cell qualification, cell modeling, and dry battery electrode process development and will work on ensuring a successful ramp of our 4680 factories while maximizing cell performance, reliability, and safety. They will synthesize the program status and key decisions both across the working-level team and up to executives.

What You'll Do

  • Define new battery cell programs by translating ambiguous targets in the discrete actionable plan
  • Collaborate with Tesla cross-functional teams across different cultures and time zones (product design, process development, equipment design, and operation teams)
  • Drive programs through development, qualification and launch with cross- functional teams
  • Distill complex technical issues to their program-level impacts
  • Synthesize and communicate the key program information up to the executive level
  • Identify creative and timely solutions to address/resolve program challenges
  • Prioritize engineering team projects based on corporate-level priorities, risk and schedule
  • Develop new tools and processes to improve productivity for the broader organization
  • What You'll Bring


  • Familiar with lithium ion electrode technology and other electrochemical technologies strongly preferred
  • B.S. in chemical-/ mechanical-/ electrical- engineering or physics / chemistry or similar subject, or equivalent experience and evidence of exceptional ability
  • 5+ years' program management or engineering experience in hardware development
  • Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written
  • Not afraid to deep dive technical problems
  • From this employer
